The crest is the least of my worries. The stars aren't great but I could probably live with them. The fake laces thing is absurd. Huge step down from '10 IMO.

They should've never changed them after these...especially after the Miracle on Ice. I actually liked the more recent USA flag logo they had in the somehwhat recent uniforms.

Hahahahahaha. Sorry. I had to laugh. Definitely doesn't fit the USA's "lunch pail" type players. Looks like you're icing a figure skating team no offense.

Those defined US hockey imo. They should be honouring a very historic and important time in US hockey history.. variations of this should be used each olympics imo.

This white could be all right for our team. Just without the stars and with cyrillic RUSSIA in front
For USA seems a little bit strange.

Nike designers just messed up countries )))

Hrm. I guess nike really likes the fake laces look this year (they did the same with team Russia's jersey). It's not my cup of tea.

I do think the white jersey looks like it could be the jersey for team Russia... which is odd.

But on the whole the jerseys aren't that bad. I do like shield and colour choice. Perhaps the jersey will look better when the players are in full gear (the stars may look less out of place when they are stretched out with the padding).

I remember people saying the NHL should dump Reebok and go with Nike because the old Nikes from the 90's were awesome. But if people hate what Reebok did to the NHL, imagine what Nike would do based on what we're seeing here.

People would have complained regardless of the unveil. But I am seriously flabbergasted at how tacky these are. The fake laces really did it for me.

I was there today and honestly didn't notice the stars or laces till about half way through the player introductions. Then again, I was standing on the side of the rink and not seeing them straight on. The stars aren't that bad, but the faux laces need to go. I'd prefer just USA across the front, but the shield is simple and actually looks cool. I don't like the blue at the top of the white one. I would have kept the whole thing white with blue and red on the sleeves.
Ultimately, it doesn't matter that much to me. I'm not one to buy jerseys anyway. The only ones I own are for my men's team. The only thing I require is the white helmet with the navy jersey, I love that look.

Yes, but put the arm stripes and star back like they originally planned to use until the IOC went full retard.
